First Day of the Rest Of Your Life
My first day was around 8 or 9 years ago, when I started
my first website. And I haven’t looked back since, but getting
was the hardest part.
Just doing it.
I was full of doubts and I was very, very skeptic not only
about starting a site but also about the net, which was more
of a novelty back then. Today, I am just glad I made that first
start and never gave up.
Since that time I have created many sites and helped many

several sites and is also starting to see those sales come in…
He is much more computer tech savvy than me and even has a

are taking over, even that is less important. You can just
talk and record videos on your subject.
But making that first start is always the hardest part. Once
you get over that hurdle, you will probably be like me, thanking
your lucky stars every day that you got involved with web marketing.
You won’t be alone, there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps
